Customer Question
My friend left her...

My friend left her razor out and my dog got it and I’m afraid he swallowed one razor blade

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if your dog will be able to digest that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your dog?

He’s 26 pounds, he’s a corgi, and he’s 1 year old

Experience: Hello, I am a small animal veterinarian and am happy to discuss any concerns & questions you have on any species.
Verified

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

How long ago could this have happened?

What kind of razor blade was it? A shaving one in a plastic case/handle or a free metal razor?

Any retching, gagging, lip licking, drooling, or vomiting?

Are his gums pink, or white/pale? Moist or sticky?

If you press on his belly, any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?
